Microsoft Azure Active Directory for the Windows Server AD Administrator
Presented by Maarten Goet
Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is a web-based, Internet-scale identity and access management service hosted in Microsoft Azure datacenters. Even though the name is similar, Azure AD is NOT just another instance of Windows Server Active Directory running on DCs in Azure datacenters. It is Hybrid Identity for a Cloud-based world. What design aspects do I need to consider? How do I integrate with my current AD on-premises? And how do I get functions such as single sign-on and self-service password reset working? Join Cloud & Datacenter MVP Maarten Goet in this demo-packed session. No Active Directory administrator should miss this!

Query Performance Tuning and Azure SQL Database
Presented by Grant Fitchey
Moving your data into Azure SQL Database changes a lot of the things you typically do when developing and deploying databases. However, query tuning isn't on that list. Under the covers, Azure SQL Database is still just SQL Server. The number-one cause of performance bottlenecks is usually T-SQL code and your data structures. This session shows you the tools available to identify poorly performing queries, such as dynamic management objects and monitoring tools in the Azure Portal. Learn how to use Azure Portal execution plans to understand why a query is running slowly. This understanding will allow you to fix your poorly performing queries and make Azure SQL Database work even better within your organization.
